Denise's story

Married to Staël ADOUNVO, Ms. Denise A. is originally from Covè in Zou County. She was born on May 26, 1985 and has never attended school. She was raised by one of her aunts. At the age of 12, she used to help her sell food. After getting married, she started working on her own with the help of her mother-in-law and her husband. She sold peanut oil and table salt. To fend off financial difficulties, she has chosen to borrow money and is on her fourth loan in the amount of 120,000 francs CFA. She intends to invest in the selling of pagnes (colorful West African cloth), something she has been doing for a year.
